Are you a medical statistician or epidemiologist interested in joining a team which will ultimately impact the provision of future healthcare for pregnant women and their children?

The University of Leeds is undertaking a major research project to provide an up-to-date estimate of the iodine status of pregnant women in the UK, and what different levels of iodine might mean in terms of health risks during pregnancy and subsequent child development. The research will take advantage of existing urine samples collected from mothers during pregnancy in the Born in Bradford birth cohort study and a new longitudinal birth cohort established to investigate how iodine levels vary over the course of pregnancy and breastfeeding, how this is affected by diet, and associated changes in thyroid function.

We are seeking a biostatistician or epidemiologist to work on this research project. You should have a PhD in a numerate discipline and practical experience of advanced statistical techniques. Applications will be accepted from individuals who have recently submitted their thesis, where any offer would be subject to successful completion within a specific timeframe.You will be responsible for analysing and reporting project data appropriately, including appropriate methods for longitudinal data, within the timeframe of the project.
